Med Ed Materials

Our Mission

The primary goal of Med Ed Materials is to increase health literacy levels for low income and uninsured populations. To accomplish this goal, Med Ed Materials produces and distributes evidence based healthcare materials with a target readership of low income and uninsured populations. Our core activities include:

  • Producing high quality evidence based materials that are easy to understand and apply

  • Creating materials with topics helpful for our target readership of low income and uninsured populations

  • Posting materials to our website and our iOS app so that anyone may download and use them for free

  • Partnering with clinics and businesses to distribute our materials

  • Giving people interested in improving health literacy a platform to help enact meaningful change

Med Ed Materials started as an idea. After much hard work, Med Ed Materials became a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation in the state of Illinois. Today, we are a small team dedicated to accomplishing the mission stated above: to improve health literacy levels for low income and uninsured populations.


At the core of Med Ed Materials are our volunteers who follow standardized guidelines on poster creation. This ensures that posters are high quality and evidence based. Our volunteers come from various places around the country but all have the same goal in mind: to improve health literacy. Additionally, our board of directors is mostly made of healthcare professionals and works tirelessly to fulfil this goal.

While other companies and organizations may post information online to improve healthcare literacy, there is not one organization that is primarily targeted at producing free print materials for improving health literacy levels in low income and uninsured populations. Many common industry websites are disease based as opposed to being focused on general illness-prevention measures and healthcare resources relevant to low income and uninsured populations. Additionally, many organizations publish a comprehensive web page rather than an easily printable summary of general health-literacy-improving information. This may be because companies may not find producing materials for uninsured or low income populations profitable.


This market gap presents a need in the industry that Med Ed Materials has been able to successfully fill. Med Ed Materials produces healthcare related educational materials that target a different readership than the current large medical information websites with a more simple goal: to improve health literacy for low income and uninsured populations. Additionally, by making all of our materials one page, they are ideal for quick reads in medical practices, businesses, or discharge instructions.

All of our materials are produced by our dedicated team of volunteers. Using up to date research and recommendations, our materials are high quality and evidence based. All materials have at minimum one credible source. To ensure that the most people can benefit from our materials, we provide them free for all to use. Whether you are a patient, office manager, physician, business owner, student, or more, you can download and learn from these materials or place them anywhere in your workplace. In addition, if there is a specific topic that you think the public could benefit from, send us a message in the "Contact" tab on our website and we will look into creating it, free of cost.
